Notice the new VMware logo?

This week at VMworld 2009, VMware is unveiling a new logo:

New VMware Logo

As you can see, there are minor changes to the font — well, if you are a graphic designer you probably don’t think the changes are minor — but the biggest difference is the removal of the “three boxes.”

The old logo is dead!ย  Long live the new logo!

Not quite –from what I hear, the new logo will be phased in over time in a cost-effective way.ย  I’m sure the shareholders appreciate that.

For comparison, here is what the old logo looked like:

What do you think of the new logo?

    I liked the Boxes! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’ll be interesting to see how the Windows Icons morph. They are all various representations of the boxes.

    I don’t like it… the connection between the v and the m in vmware looks terrible compared to the previous logo.

    Honestly, I don’t like it, but the logo itself is meaningless, the rock solid VMware products are what matters.

    I like the boxes too! What is the reasoning behind changing the VMware logo? Inquiring minds want to know…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks everyone for chiming in on the new logo. I know many old-timers will miss the boxes — we fear change. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The new logo will stand out better and make the VMware name more recognizable.

    I need your new logo in a vector-based format for a partner presentation we’re doing at SAP TechEd. Can someone e-mail it to me?

      Brad, I’ve passed your info to an appropriate contact within VMware.
